  6. About our prices
    1. As a small independent online retailer, that is just starting out in business and presently does not expect to reach or exceed the GST turnover threshold, The Office Shoppe is not presently registered for the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
    2. This means that all prices displayed on the Website and its Purchase Services do not include GST (That is – no price is either exclusive (ex GST) or inclusive (inc GST) of GST, but instead all prices contain no portion or percentage of GST) and no amount of GST is charged when payment is made for an order.
    3. In all cases and at all times we always state the total price as a single figure. The Cart, Checkout and Invoice totals also display a GST row to further clarify that no GST is paid.
    4. As The Office Shoppe is not registered for GST, our invoices cannot and do not include the words ‘tax invoice’ and are issued only as normal invoices.
    5. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) website page on Registering for GST states (redacted and rephrased for specific relevancy to The Office Shoppe) that:
      1. a business or enterprise must register for GST if it has a GST turnover (gross income minus GST) of $75 000 or more, or it wants to claim fuel tax credits;
      2. if a business or enterprise doesn’t fit into one of the above categories, registering for GST is optional; and
      3. if your turnover exceeds the relevant threshold, you must register within 21 days of reaching it.
    6. If The Office Shoppe’s turnover exceeds the relevant threshold, we will register for GST within 21 days of reaching it. From that point in time moving forward:
      1. all prices on the Website and its Purchase Services (including invoices) will be displayed in a manner that clearly and accurately indicates they are inclusive of GST (inc GST);
      2. all invoices will include the words ‘tax invoice’; and
      3. all purchases and payments made to The Office Shoppe will include the charging of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
    7.
